Martin Noble: introduction
A highly experienced freelance editor, writer, proofreader, indexer, researcher and website designer, with over thirty years' experience in British book publishing. I live in Oxford, UK, and have worked as an editor for around 400 clients, including book and magazine publishers, companies, government organizations, and individual writers since 1967.
After graduating from Cambridge with an Honours degree in English (1967), I was a commissioning editor for London general publishers in the 1970s (Granada, New English Library) and went freelance in 1979 as Martin Noble Editorial (MNE). In 1992 I moved from London to Oxford where I have continued to provide editorial services and to work as a writer.
As a fiction writer, I have had twelve novelizations (film and TV tie-ins) published by New English Library and Star, including:
In 1996 my first novel, Trance Mission, was published by Henderson.
As a writer-researcher of non-fiction subjects, I have been a major contributor to The Encyclopaedia of World Facts (Foundry), The Encyclopaedia of Singles (Foundry) and The Reader's Companion to the Twentieth Century Novel (Helicon), general editor of The Internet: An Illustrated Guide (Foundry); other published work includes biographies on Leonardo DiCaprio (Henderson) and Ewan McGregor (Henderson).
